as one of my co-workers daughter's would say, "i know that i know everything because i can't think of a single thing i don't know"
all kidding aside, my reccomendation would be a bolt action .22 to start, cheap to buy & cheap to shoot.
i gotta give the OP props for havin the nutz to ask & post questions though, alotta people would probably just buy something & try to figure out how it works & what to do with it later. if you know some people that own firearms, see if they can show you in person some of the differences between the different types of actions, bullet sizes, etc. or head down to a local gun store & ask an employee to give you a hand. don't let someone bully you into thinking "[insert caliber here] is a p*ssy round, you need something bigger"
welcome to shooting, try to research & learn as much as you can & maybe one day you'll know as much as C3
